Eclectic style breaks the rules, mixing and matching different patterns and textures, old and new, East and West, luxe and humble, showy and quiet. It invites you to fill a space with objects you love and with unique finds from all over the world. It works with contrasts, it’s fun and makes your home unique and inviting. To me it is the most personal and most individual way to create your own living space. However, you need to be careful not to create chaos with mixing and matching everything.There is a thin line between eclecticism and chaos. If you are unsure, then use color, patterns, and focal points to tie it all in together.

Wow, Diane’s striking hideaway above her DvF store in the Meetpacking District in Manahattan is eclectic and super stylish and yet there is no defined style concept.

An intuitive mix of color and patterns, plenty of books, photographs and many more personal things make the rooms so unique and inviting … “It’s just odds and ends, all the things that have happened throughout my life… It’s bohème, like me. I’m not a bourgeoise—never have been, never will be.” Diane von Furstenberg.
